The New Jersey Expanding Capabilities Center (NJECC) is a progressive day habilitation program, servicing adults 21+ with developmental disabilities to be as functional and independent in their day-to-day lives as possible. Our program will provide our clients with the opportunity to participate within their community, gain knowledge and skills to complete day-to-day tasks, as well as practice and engage in social interactions and relationships. Clients will also be provided with access to therapeutic services, including but not limited to occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy. These therapeutic services not only allow for continuity of care for our clients just recently graduating from high school, but continued opportunity to develop independent living skills.
DSP’s will also promote community integration by accompanying the program participants on recreational outings.
Community Based Activity Therapists assist the intellectually disabled population with increasing their ability to complete Activities of Daily Living.
The Speech Language Pathologist will be a key member of the clinical team with the role of not only providing evaluative and treatment services to our client but contributing to our clinical decision and development of therapeutic programs.
